The world is changing in a dizzying way. Avalanches of information are pouring in from all sides, mixing the important and the accessory, the true and the false, the gadget and the fundamental. In this deluge, the stakes are high, alerts are heard, and resistance is sometimes organised.
UP' does not claim to cover all the news and information, day by day, hour by hour. Other media outlets do, relaying the echoes of the world continuously, as the flow of information continues. UP' has chosen the path of uncompromising journalism in deciphering news - the sometimes thunderous, sometimes imperceptible milestones of changing times. For UP', deciphering means choosing, identifying, verifying, validating and putting into perspective. UP' journalists don't chase the scoop; their engine is light, lighting up those dark or fleeting areas of the information flow. For them, enlightenment means in every sense of the word: highlighting, but also making complex information accessible, giving relief to situate it in relation to its context, putting it into perspective to better see what links each detail to a larger mechanism. Giving meaning.
UP' journalists are free to do this work. The structure of the magazine (an association under the law of 1901) frees them from any media, industrial or financial dependence. UP' is financed by the subscriptions of its readers. It is to them and them alone that it is accountable.
UP' does not deal with all the subjects in the world. The editorial team, supported by dozens of contributors who are experts in their fields, focuses on the major issues of our time, and follows their evolution, everywhere on the planet. The environment, climate change, food, health, living things, education, digital technology, AI, etc. are all themes that focus the acute attention of UP' editorial writers, columnists and reporters. In search of the weak signals of our times, the magazine's journalists also scrutinize what is happening in high-tech labs, reporting without bias on innovations from research and industry. They identify and highlight new forms of solidarity, pioneering initiatives and inspiring citizen initiatives. But in their quest, they also go to galleries, artists' studios and museums, because that is also where the world of tomorrow is taking shape.

UP' readers are demanding and they are right. They are over-informed, they are sometimes masters in certain subjects. We don't tell them stories. They don't just want information, they want original, if possible intelligent, salient ways of dealing with it. They are interested in the angles from which subjects are approached, in the interrelation of sometimes heterogeneous information, in the offbeat view of a philosopher, a scientist, an artist, because suddenly the fact of information is perceived differently. The million readers who read UP' every month form the circle of those who accept to look at the world with open eyes.
This mission is the fruit of scrupulous, responsible, precise journalistic work, which can only be carried out successfully under two conditions: independence and convictions. Editorial independence means that UP' is free to investigate, to highlight solutions, but also to challenge the inaction of those in power or who forget the common interest. We inform our readers every day about threats to the environment, health, lifestyles and consumption patterns, among others, based on facts, often scientific, and not on commercial or political interests. UP' journalists are aware of their responsibility and have made several important changes in their editorial expression to ensure that the language they use accurately, but without being catastrophic, reflects the urgency of the world.
UP' Magazine believes that the problems we face in the climate, health and economic crisis are systemic and that fundamental societal change is needed. Therefore, UP' is relentlessly committed to reporting on the efforts of individuals and communities around the world who are courageously taking a stand for future generations and the preservation of human life on earth.
In this task, UP' teams are not isolated. They are in close contact with other editorial offices around the world that share the same values. UP' has thus made a formal commitment to give climate change, the extinction of wild species, pollution, the quality of our food and the ecological transition the urgent attention and importance that these challenges demand. This commitment is reflected in UP' Magazine's partnership with Covering Climate Nowa global collaboration of 400 selected media outlets to strengthen news coverage of climate issues. With this alliance, more than two billion readers will no longer be able to say they didn't know.
